In brief: Homeopathy

Homeopathy may work through principles of nanopharmacology, activating the body's own powers of self-regulation and self-healing.
Materials science indicates homeopathic remedies may affect entire organisms through epitaxy: the transfer of information, not material, from the surface of one material (usually solid) to another material (usually liquid, like our bodies that are 70% water).

I will answer for acupuncture & will allow one of the homeopaths to also answer. A number of chemicals/neurotransmitters can be impacted by acupuncture: serotonin, norepinephrine, substance p, gaba, dopamine, b- endorphin, acth, dynorphins, leucine - enkephalin & methionine-enkephalin.
Acupuncture also blocks obstructions in blood flow, lymphatic drainage, nerve conduction and chi. Different for.

forms of acupuncture have different impacts on the body. The strongest form of acupuncture is major energy moving protocols that work with major meridians.
